“LOVE NEST”: TIM LAUGHLIN – CONNIE JONES at SAN DIEGO (Nov. 23, 2012)

Yes, this set begins with a farewell — but a rather cheerful one despite the woebegone title.  Just a wonderful band, caught in action at the 2012 San Diego Thanksgiving Dixieland Jazz Festival (thanks to Paul Daspit as well as the musicians!) — Tim Laughlin, clarinet; Connie Jones, cornet and occasional vocal; Mike Pittsley, trombone; Chris Dawson, piano; Katie Cavera, guitar; Marty Eggers, string bass; Hal Smith, drums.

MAMA’S GONE, GOOD-BYE:

IF YOU WERE THE ONLY GIRL IN THE WORLD:

SOME OF THESE DAYS (a feature for that superb rhythm team):

LOVE NEST:

SLEEPY TIME DOWN SOUTH:

I’LL SEE YOU IN MY DREAMS:

DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO MISS NEW ORLEANS?:

Not exactly a Love Nest . . . more like a Love Fest.  I could go on at length about the virtues of the players and the delicious ensemble textures . . . but it’s all audible to anyone who cares to sit down and listen.  (It’s a Rolls-Royce of a band . . . but affordable!)

May your happiness increase.
